Today we announce an additional £6 million of National Lottery-funded Grants for the arts that will be available to libraries from September 2012.

This fund will support projects that stimulate ambitious and innovative partnerships between libraries and artists and/or arts organisations, encouraging communities to participate in cultural activities.

Funding will run from September 2012 until March 2015 ­- we will announce more details when the fund opens in September.
